Reserving Cuyamaca College Library Materials

Library users may place a hold request for an item that is checked out to another patron. Requests are placed through the OPAC.  When a requested item becomes available, it will be placed on hold at the circulation desk and the requestor notified to pick up the item within 3 days. Hold requests may not be placed on reserve items. Library users may also place holds by calling circulation during business hours (619-660-4416) or visiting the circulation desk in person.

Reserving Materials Held in Other Libraries

Interlibrary loan is a national lending system through which library users may order books from other libraries in the United States. Items from the Grossmont Library and the San Diego State Library should arrive in approximately two business days. It takes longer to get materials from other libraries, so plan ahead. To order ILL items online, please use the Interlibrary Loan Form, located on the library's website. Overdue fines on interlibrary loan materials are $3.00 per item per day.
